Gingered Rice

If you're not a fan of vegan meats, this recipe would be just fine without the crumbles. Experiment with it!

1 lb. of vegan burger crumbles
2 Tbsp. oil
1/2 tsp. ground ginger (or more, to taste)
2 cups water
2 cups quick cooking rice
2 cups sugar snap peas
1 red pepper, chopped

Saute the crumbles in the oil. Add the ginger, water & rice. Bring to a boil & turn down to a simmer. Simmer for 5 minutes, then add the peas & pepper. Cover, remove from heat and let the veggies steam for several minutes.

I have been a vegetarian for six weeks (minus one day I ate fish and shrimp). I am not vegan and I do plan to eat fish now and then. I find that most veggie meats do not go down for me--literally. I am going to try your recipe because I do like veggie crumbles. Plus, I need creative and tasty ways to be a vegetarian!
